Regardless of your political persuasion, 2016 was a year of tumult and uncertainty. At least the movies gave us an occasional break from the headlines. Feel-good animated films triumphed at the box office this year, with Finding Dory at No. 1, while superheroes found a darker groove (the hard-R comedy Deadpool, the villain-driven Suicide Squad) and familiar franchises — Harry Potter, Star Wars — put down new roots. Before we toast the arrival of 2017, here’s a list of the biggest box-office winners and losers of 2016.
Bad Moms heroine Amy (Mila Kunis), a mother of two, doesn’t have time for any nonsense — particularly from her husband Mike (David Walton), whom she discovers is having an internet affair. Bad Moms was a surprise hit in a summer riddled with big-budget franchise flops. The film, starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, received mostly-good reviews and grossed over $100 million on a $20 million budget, thanks to a mostly-female audience.
STX Entertaintmet is planning a Bad Dads movie as a spinoff from its Bad Moms comedy and plans to release the film on July 14, 2017. Bad Moms has grossed nearly $180 million worldwide at the box office, making it the most successful release by far for two-year-old STX. STX Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group said Monday that it has numerous takes on this spinoff and will reveal additional details shortly.
Matt Damon’s decision to return to the big screen as a mysterious CIA agent trying to regain his memory has paid off.
Matt Damon's return to role will surpass opening of 'Bourne Legacy' with Jeremy Renner, but will trail opening of Damon's previous film in franchise
'Bridesmaids' co-writer/'Bad Moms' co-star tells Vanity Fair an unlikely email correspondence with 'Doctor Strange' actress led her to new project
July 29 comedy written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the duo responsible for penning the original 'The Hangover'
The new trailer for Bad Moms should completely obliterate all the lingering aftertaste left behind by Garry Marshall’s Mother’s Day. Co-directed and co-written by Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the movie takes aim at the overwhelming “having it all” expectations placed on today’s working moms. The trailer (watch above) zeroes in on Mila Kunis’s character, who becomes so overwhelmed by the daily struggle to take care of the kids, make it to marketing meetings on time, get the dog to the vet, and contribute gluten-free desserts to the PTA bake sale that she finally reaches a breaking point.
